The Role of External Funding in Educational Research and Building Collaborations with HBCUs
Dr. Caesar Jackson, Interim Dean of the Graduate School and Professor of Physics, North Carolina Central University
The expectation of garnering external funding is weaved-in, ingrained, and integral part of the teaching, research, and service expectations for faculty. Scholarship in research includes the generation of research proposals, research protocols, working papers, journal articles, research reports, book chapters, and books. However, the expectations is publication without external funding is not acceptable; and external funding without publication is not acceptable. Therefore, let’s explore funding opportunities available to support educational research,  specifically STEM education research. In addition, we will identify value and opportunities in building research collaborations with historically black colleges and universities especially in STEM education research.
